Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I'm in an unhealthy relationship with merino wool and snagged an Earth Wind & Rider cycling hoodie from Bonktown - can't wait to get it!

Zinn and the Art of Road Bike Maintenance. It's a very basic book from what I've read, which is perfect for me since I'm just getting my feet wet. I've read the intro and first couple chapters and have already learned a bit.

It is a pretty good book to have in a library.

Genius 6.6s... they're on clearance right now from just about everyone and my Sidi Zephyrs took a beating from the crash so it's time to replace.

Google search "sidi genius 6.6" and they pop up from around $250-300. I ordered them from Competitive Cyclist because of the fast shipping so I can 2-day them here by Thursday. That and their return policy... just in case. I believe they are the 2010 model but that's fine with me since it appears the accents on the 2011 model are gold instead of silver.

These are the mega width, btw. that may make a difference.

^^^ If it's anything like Fizik's carbon-bodied Arione K:1, it flexes and absorbs bumps pretty well.
